Book of the Week: Eyebrows of Geese

sagan_eyebrowsofgeesecoverMiriam Sagan is one of the most successful “mainstream” poets to have also made haiku a regular part of her oeuvre. This early chapbook (Dragonscales & Mane Publishing, 1986) gives a good account of how she came to the genre.

You can read the entire book in the THF Digital Library.

Touching Mother-of-pearl earrings; Slipping on ice
Across the sky Two eyebrows Of returning geese
Vase of dried flowers Before the mirror Outside the window — prairie
Fog rising Spring thaw Ache in my old scar
